|Wonderful writing about a perfect moment Larner. My favourite line was the same as Shirebound's. |
Author Reply: That Aragorn decided to be crowned in this manner says volumes about his character, which was of the very highest. Thanks so, Harrowcat.

|In the end he did not take the Kingship, but instead accepted it as a sacred trust.|
What a moment! This is the true King indeed.
Author Reply: Indeed so, Shirebound! The King we have all wished to know, I think. One who rules not of his own power, but out of love for those who granted him his title and responsibilities. Thanks so!

|This is a very powerful piece.|
? Those Trees created by his fellows—they were an affront to his eyes, for he had not taken part in their crafting.
Indeed, those with malice in their hearts take no joy in the success or accomplishments of others.
Author Reply: So it has ever been, apparently. Thank you so!

|IMO, you have captured the essence of Gandalf beautifully. I so enjoyed reading this. Congrats. |
Author Reply: I so rejoice you think so. How strange it must have felt to him, to find himself once more able to put off a seeming and go between spiritual and physical forms! And he goes accompanied by two of his beloved Hobbits.

|Aww, such a beautiful portrait of Gandalf. You did a wonderful job here, Larner. :)|
Author Reply: Thank you so, Ellynn. I do love the Grey Wanderer, after all.

|the staff that held that of his power and memories he had no immediate need of|
What a marvelous way to say that. This is a lovely, inspiring piece.
Author Reply: I've always believed the staff held that part of the Wizard's memories and power that would be part of his Maiar background, and that this was why the breaking of it would be so devastating, leaving him trapped in the mortal form without the ability to shift back when the right time came. Thanks so, Shirebound!

|This is a wonderful biography Larner and a wonderful ending too!|
Author Reply: I'm so glad you find it so, Harrowcat. Thanks so!

|This explains the part of the original story that has been hard to accept. Thank you for this sweet story, it made me smile.|
Author Reply: I did wish this piece to reflect the cost to all that came from both Earendil's and Elwing's decisions. Tolkien indicated that Earendil did not wish to accept the life of the Eldar, but that he did so in response to Elwing's decision. At least this way they do have the hope of being reunited with their sons, should, hopefully, both Elrond and Elros also be granted the life of the Eldar.
And thank you for letting me know you appreciate it!
